In part 3, Graham Bonnet returns back to his place of Birth in Skegness, England for a home coming show at ‘The Skycastle’ where he last played the venue 49 years ago. While in Skegness, Bonnet visits his parent’s resting place, his former band mates and his relatives.
While on tour in Glasgow, Scotland Bonnet salutes former Rainbow bassist Jimmy Bain who recently passed away,” I’d like to say something, you lost one of your fellow countrymen, Jimmy Bain and I would like to salute him, a former member of Rainbow.”
In Newcastle, during a radio interview Bonnet states,” I started in 1968 that is my age now 68. It’s been a long trip, to see musical styles change, I’ve been through every kind of era and picked up a little bit of every era and added to my music now.”
Bonnet also tells the tale of when he got fired from The Michael Schenker Group after one show for exposing his penis on stage, in Sheffield U.K. in 1982, “my penis came out of my pants, I encouraged it, it was bit like getting a turtle out of a shell and I swung it.”
The lineup and camera crew includes Graham Bonnet, guitarist extraordinaire Conrado Pesinato, bassist Beth-Ami Heavenstone and former FATES WARNING, WARLORD drummer Mark Zonder, and Manager Giles Lavery
GRAHAM BONNET BAND’s new album, which will be made available later in the year via Frontiers Music Srl, will also include a bonus disc of brand new recordings of classic songs from the Graham Bonnet repertoire.
